Hugh Jackman Tries Latest Weight Loss Trend

There is no doubting Hugh Jackman is getting better looking with age.

But his latest social media posts show the lengths he is going to, to look good.

The 48-year-old shared a video of himself using a cryotherapy tank.

These blast sub-artic air, at almost negative 100 degrees Celsius onto your body for three minutes.

The idea is that it can manage pain but also restore blood vessels and smooth skin.

The idea has been around since the 17th century, and we all know what benefit an ice pack can do to numb pain.

Some studies have shown cold can stimulate the body and help burn calories quickly. That’s probably a good enough reason for some to give it a go, however it does come with some warning after a 24-year-old woman doing the treatment. Not to mention there is no real scientific support it as an effective weight loss or obesity prevention measure. It has also not been approved as a medical treatment although some health professionals regularly use it.

Forbes.com describes the procedure, where the person will stand in a tank or closet-like device, wear minimal clothing and be bathed in liquid nitrogen or refrigerated cold air…like taking the ultimate cold shower. The differences are that “carbonite” gas is not used, so you do not emerge frozen in a block of ice.

If you take the word of Hugh, he said it works!

Is this something you would try?
